SOUTHERN Province UPND secretary Winnerson Ng’uni says the PF leadership needs to learn from South Africa’s Jacob Zuma’s fate.
And Southern Province UPND deputy information and publicity secretary Neto Halwabala says the PF is destroying Zambia’s democracy.
Zuma, the former South African president, faces prosecution for 783 counts of corruption relating to a 30 billion rand ($2.5billion)
government arms deal in the late 1990s.
Shaun Abrahams, South Africa’s chief prosecutor, said there were “reasonable prospects of a successful prosecution” of Zuma.
In an interview, Ng’uni said PF leaders would face court time once out of office.
“I listened to the DA leader Mmusi Maimane who said it does not matter who one is. He said even if one was a President, accountability must prevail. So I urge them (PF) to reflect on what they are doing, we have a lot of corruption and theft of public funds,”
He added that Zambians would want to know what happened to their resources.
“We have our natural resources being raped under the PF government, Mukula tree is being taken out of the country at will, but time will come when they’ll account,” said Ng’uni.
And Halwabala said the PF had failed to walk the talk on corruption and had failed to respect the rule of law.
“The PF has failed to walk the talk on corruption and sadly they have destroyed our democracy. Zambians have lost trust in institutions that are the cornerstone of fundamental human rights and freedoms,”
